'Rotary Club of Mississauga-Malton' (RCMM) is one of 9 highly active Rotary clubs in the City of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Proud to be part of Rotary International, a 1.2 million member worldwide humanitarian organization, with 33,000 Rotary clubs around the world. Rotarians are men and women who volunteer their time to make a difference in our communities and the world, through local and international service projects, fundraising efforts to support local charities, youth programs, and global relief efforts.

Our outreach programs locally focus on Youth and Seniors. To adapt our existing programs to a 'virtual' format (in view of COVID-19 restrictions), we seek to enlist capable dedicated volunteers to coordinate these programs and their transition, in collaboration with the Club's Program Director.

Locally, the Club has recognized a need for a program that focuses on teaching newcomer 'stay-at-home' mothers English, with Arabic being their first/native language. The ideal volunteer will enjoy the opportunity to build a 'remote' program that will start with a small group, with further development possible. This is a 'role' that the volunteer will largely define.
